The course is aimed to bring the students to directly approach the design problems in the field of power electronics, both on devices and the whole modules, by means of electro-thermo-mechanical simulation and considering EMC aspects, which are today critical for power systems. The last part of the course is devoted to the renewable energy production, with particular emphasis to photovoltaic systems.


- Complements on electromagnetic compatibility (EMC):
- Shielding
- Physical 2D simulation of power semiconductor devices
- MIXED-MODE simulation for inductive transients
- Thermo-electro-mechanical simulation of power devices and modules
- Finite elements model (FEM) simulation
